TAT OFFENSIVE!

Thanks to you - and the stars' - genorisity, we can buy 2,807 loaves of bread for children in need in war torn areas of the world...

The NME.COM Internet auction has closed, with the collection of tat from stars at NME CARLING AWARDS raising over £250 for the WAR CHILD charity.

Though the final sum is not huge, it means War Child can buy 2,807 loaves of bread for children in need in war torn areas of the world.

The biggest single sum raised was £92 for Muse frontman Matt Bellamy’s British Airways card. This will buy 1022 loaves, while a used phonecard from Starsailor‘s James Walsh bought 420 loaves with the £37.70 raised. Even the final bid of £2.20 for former glamour model Jo Guest’s cigarette will buy 24 loaves.

You can see what the other items went for and who many people they will feed in next week’s issue of the NME, in shops in London on Tuesday (March 26) and a day later throughout the UK.
